Sometimes people react negatively to the word “networking” thinking of cheesy characters tossing business cards around with selfish agendas. This workshop dispels the myths and fears associated with this critical life and leadership skill. In fact, it is networking that has brought Target to campus and with them, the return of former members of the Emerging Leaders Program.  Participants will paint a new picture of the process after being given a framework to be more effective at networking, while also having an opportunity to experience the power of the process.
